A Silky family
I made this image to serve two purposes - one of which was for this site: Cycling for sifakas. This fellow, Ivan, is intending to cycle about the South Island of New Zealand, dressed as a silky sifaka, in order to raise money and species awareness. What can I say? If anyone wants to dress up in a white pelt and go biking in the summer, well, I fully endorse that. Anyhow, he asked me if he could use Aurelia's image, and I gave him permission, but was somewhat ashamed at the quality of the scan. I think this one will be much better. Of course, he's not going to have the full body of the lemurs - just the heads and top halves.
The second purpose - other than the reason to draw more lemurs, and possibly to use in my novel, is also to submit it to the Illustrated ATCs calendar.
